Seeing Double And The Easter Twins

I think I have told you
that I am 
more "stuff"-

I have been doing 
a good job.
I mean, seriously,
how much "stuff"
do I need?

Well, as I was in a
Health Food Store
of all places,
I noticed a 30% OFF
sale sign
on the Easter table.

I glanced over.
Shut Up!
A foil wrapped 
chocolate bunny?
What is even better than that?
A faux foil wrapped
chocolate bunny.

I have two daughters
and one daughter-in-love
that I try to treat equally. you have 3 of these
(for Easter presents)?
You have TWO of them?
Well I HAVE to have ONE
for me...because the
price is SO cheap-
1/2 of what I have seen
anywhere else.
Okay-I rationalize-
only ONE little
Easter purchase this year.
Pretty good, Diana,
if I do say so myself.
Look! how cute is he?
Oh- wait he wants to sit in
the kitchen window next to
the Easter Egg Tree?
Well, isn't he just sweet?
I guess the old adage is true.
Rabbits multiply when you
aren't looking!
I guess 
will be arm wrestling over these
two to
"remember when Mom bought these"....
Maybe they will get lucky and 
they will multiply by one
in storage!

Easter blessings-

Oh, I like those. I have the perfect solution to your problem.
You leave them to Jettie and me in your will.
Problem solved.
Be careful on the roads and make sure to take plenty of photos of the kids with their eggs and funny faces.

How pretty! Happy Easter!!!

Very cute, Diana! It's too bad they didn't have more {although, I think I saw similar at Home Goods} because of course you have to subtract the one for yourself. : )

LOVE Those bunnies ! How COOL !

I would have bought them too ! I hope they multiply...An Easter miracle could happen

Maria Elena said...

They are sooo good looking! They would of come home with me also! Not that I am in a habit of picking up good looking guys at the Health Food Store! LOL You know what I mean! :)
Have a wonderful and blessed Easter, Diane! And enjoy your time with your family!

SImple and Serene Living said...

Those were definitely too cute to pass up. Have a wonderful Easter.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh they are adorable. I love them. I think you really needed them both. Hugs, Marty

Blondie's Journal said...

You may have mentioned not buying things lately...AHEM! But who could resist that cute bunny and if it was in a health food store, it must be good for you! I buy candy with peanut butter in it, I don't like PB so I don't eat it.

Have a wonderful Easter and I am sending a BIG hug!

those bunnies are really popular this year, maybe you will find another on sale after Easter, I think they are so cute, not tasty but cute.

Karen said...

They're adorable! I saw some similar at Home Goods and slowly walked away. Twice. I am REALLY trying not to accumulate more STUFF. Ofcourse, I just accumulated another dog, so that's a bit hypocritical. :-)

Have a great Easter weekend!

Debi WeeFaerie said...

They are adorable! I have never even seen faux foil wrapped chocolate bunnies before... I need to get out more lol!

outjunking said...

Since you confessed, I'l confess I've eaten almost a whole bag of twix bars I bought to hide for Easter. What the heck it's only Easter once a year right? You did great with that bunny treat.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Cute rabbits and yes, they multiply quickly.

A Very Blessed Easter to You & Yours!!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Pretty bunnies!
Have you eaten them yet???

Lucille said...

I would not have been able to resist them either! Happy Easter!

Donna said...

I made the same promise - and I haven't bought a thing this year, well, except 3 BIG bags of candy! Well, a Grandma's got to have candy to put in the plastic eggs for the Hunt! (Mom already called and said, "just put 'em out empty this year." Oh yeah, right, the grandchildren won't be looking at her going, Grandma??!!) So~that's what I'm doing tonight, stuffing eggs with candy - only one piece, right? (Yeah right! Not!! It's Grandma's house, after all!)

I hope there aren't any Faux Rabbits, Chickens or any other cute little animals at the stores - I unpacked 3 boxes to put up around the house already! Diana, your not being a good influence here! Or maybe you are . . .

Love you!

Debby said...

I try to not buy more. I do give it a thought about whether I need it, where I will put it, and do I need something else more. I have been on little shopping spree lately. I need to stop. BUT, it has been all the things that I NEED, right.
How did you make those bunnies multiply. I am still chasing those bunnies around here, hah.
Happy Easter.

Phyllis @Around the House said...

wow...we must be long lost sisters...not only am I a blonde...I also am doing well at not buying more stuff....well until the other day when I found a great buy on some beautiful napkins....well there goes the no new stuff deal...I will try again...I am thinking if I have a more critical eye...and am just pickier...(you know thats not gonna work long) love your faux bunnies...I would have grabbed them too...see you soon....

Kathleen said...

Love them! Off to buy some gifts for the gkids and dil and hostess. Hitting WSonoma Outlet to see what is left at 60 off. Have to wait till after 3...Good Friday you know. Should not be on this puter either!
Happy Easter!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Oh cute...yes, I think your thinking was positively accurate!!

NanaNor's said...

Hi, The bunnies are so cute!!! I know your girls will be fighting over them some day. Hope you have a joy filled Easter.
Hugs, Noreen

Oh Diana,
I am surprised that you, being a nurse and all, don't realize that the foil wrapping is going to mess up any chance of reproduction!!!
Hey, I couldn't help myself - : )

I do love your bunnies-
And, I am real sorry about Keys. Sweet Cheeks cheered me up pretty quickly though.
Happy Easter to you sweet family

Cute! Happy easter

Musings from Kim K. said...

How could you resist? I would have done the same thing. Simply adorable. Have a beautiful Easter! Thank you for all your lovely visits to my blog.

Patty Patterson said...

Those are really cute! And they're better than real chocolate bunnies. They will last a lot longer and they have no calories!

I deleted this by mistake trying to get rid of a spammer that slipped through so I am reposting this comment from my email.

Love those bunnies too...those I could get used to...not a bit like mine!!

I call my daughter in law my 'daughter in love' too.
Thanks for calling by to visit!

Holly said...

That 30% off gets me every time. Sometimes kids will ask me how I can figure something so fast. Now, mind you, I am not good at math, but I can sure calculate the % off of something in 0.5 seconds!
Happy Easter!

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...'s a good thing! I have lots of twins! LOL! Happy Easter!

Oops, forgot to say may your Easter be filled with many wonderful blessings!

Savannah Granny said...

Those are so cute. I was going for a while. You got me when you put him in the window, I thought "It will melt"
You are always suckering me in, or maybe I am just gullible.
Have a joyful Easter, Ginger

Cindy Adkins said...

Awww, how precious!! Happy Easter, Diana!!!!

One things for sure, where there is one bunny there will be two; if not more! lol! Yup, too cute to pass up. Sure hope they don't melt in the window! Can faux chocolate melt?

Marsha said...

I've seen those foil bunnies. Too cute!
I'm your latest follower.

Jessica said...

My favorite is raiding the Easter racks the day after Easter. All those Reese's Eggs for 80% off? Yes Please!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Your too funny Diana! Those bunnies are too cute! Have a wonderful Easter!

Tracey@Breathing English Air said...

I really like these bunnies. I hope they continue to multiply!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

The bunnies are adorable. I do hope they multiply quickly.
I have just been scrolling through the posts I've missed recently(long work hours)and you have had me laughing and crying. You have such a wonderful creative style. Absolutely adore you!

NanE said...

Hi Diana, I LOVE those Faux foil bunnies! I saw some really big ones the other day in Steinmart but resisted the temptation. Once both of my girls have completely left the nest and I divie out the old stuff to them, it will give me an excuse to buy NEW stuff! Have a wonderful Easter, Nan

Diana LaMarre said...

Since there were only two, I can see no other solution than to keep them for yourself. :)

KimMalk said...

Ya know, you could have had a giveaway with one ;)!

DecRenew Interiors said...

Every year when I was little, we would get a chocolate Easter egg or bunny that was hollow inside. Usually Cadbury's. I've continued that tradition with my girls and they always look forward to it!

Happy Easter to you!!

Debbiedoos said...

Very cute bunnies Diana! I wish you and your beautiful family a very Happy Easter. Sorry it is chilly willy!
